The 3 Steps to Tie One On
Wrap. Write. Deliver:
On the day before Thanksgiving, we are encouraged to pause in the preparation of our own meal, wrap a loaf of bread in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on...an apron, of course!, It's then suggested that we deliver the wrapped bundle to someone in need of spiritual or physical sustenance. If you think about it, giving food during the Thanksgiving season has been traditional for years.
“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.”

Definition of an Apron
"An apron is an outer protective garment that covers primarily the front of the body. It may be worn for hygienic reasons as well as in order to protect clothes from wear and tear." "The apron is commonly part of the uniform of several work categories, including waitresses, nurses, and domestic workers." "Many homemakers also wear them." "It is also worn as a decorative garment by women." "Aprons are also worn in many commercial establishments to protect workers clothes from damage, mainly bib aprons, but also others such as farrier aprons."
Aprons in the home
"The apron was traditionally viewed as an essential garment for anyone doing housework. Cheaper clothes and washing machines made aprons less common beginning in the mid 1960s in some countries such as the United States. "However, the practice of wearing aprons remains strong in many places."
"Today, the apron has enjoyed a minor renaissance in terms of both women and men now wearing them when performing household chores." "For instance, an article in the Wall Street Journal claimed in 2005 that the apron is "enjoying a renaissance as a retro-chic fashion accessory" in the United States. "However, it still is not as prevalent as it was prior to the 1960s."
"Aprons are nowadays considered equally appropriate for both women and men by most people." "However, prevailing social norms ensure that women frequently wear more delicate clothing, and may therefore be more likely to want the protection an apron offers."
